Warm Home Discount Scheme

The Warm Home Discount scheme has been reformed for Winter 2022-23. This gives you £150 off energy bills over winter.

If your energy supplier is part of the scheme and your name is on the bill, the following groups automatically qualifies for the Warm Home Discount Scheme
• Core group 1: People who get the Guarantee Credit element of Pension Credit
• Core group 2: other people who are fuel-poor – see link below for test of means-tested benefits

The scheme opens on 14 November 2022. You’ll receive a letter between November 2022 and January 2023 telling you about the discount if you’re eligible.

Most eligible households will receive an automatic discount. Your letter will say if you need to call a helpline by 28 February 2023 to confirm your details.

If you’re eligible, your electricity supplier will apply the discount to your bill by 31 March 2023. Click in link below for more details
